Real practice is the only thing that can help you. Driving in a video game is not good practice at all.

what he said, but forza 2 with the microsoft steering wheel is as real as you're gonna get in a videogame.

Assuming you know how to press pedals with your feet and turn a wheel, there's not muchthat any video game will teach you.

Real-world driving is much more about the small little rules, the etiquette, staying aware of your surroundings, and having the general confidence of driving with other cars on the road. All that comes with time.

Just keep practicing. If after some years you decide that you like driving a lot, and want to go race your car on a track, THEN certain games will come in handy for preparation.

A game like Madden actually does teach you a whole lot about playing football.

The problem here is that there's no games that try and 'simulate' real-world, day-to-day driving.

No game can teach you how to drive in real life. You need to practice in a real car.

You could always get a free roaming game like midnight club la or something and use the wheel and try to drive around the streets following the rules of the road?

Grand Turismo on PS2 helped me to get a good feel how to parallel park. But it is good to get some RL experience.
